Abstract

Some basic abundance results for low metallicity stars that were formed in the early days of the Milky Way Galaxy are summarized. Discussion is centered on two nucleosynthetic groups: the light a elements (Mg, Si, and Ca), and the neutron-capture elements (those heavier than the Fe group, atomic numbers greater than 30). Emphasis is placed on the present state of stellar spectroscopic and atomic transition data.
